Ok, so when I am cleaning the house, blogging, cooking, or just plain pacing around the house because I have no idea what to do with myself on my day off (c’mon, we’ve all done it… right?) I am listening to music. I recently discovered the joys of an Apple TV and iTunes radio. I’m going to blame this one on my age and “evolving with the times”. It’s awesome! It’s like Pandora or any other radio, music, pick your own station app… except on my TV, which makes me happy.

I’m really big into setting the mood for whatever I’m cooking/drinking/eating. Example, there’s an Italian Restaurant station! No joke! And it plays the obligatory ”when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie” music. So of course when I made my  Bucatini all’Amatriciana, I was definitely getting in the mood. It’s more like a motivator for me. If I’ve been working 9 days straight and I’m hungry and then I have to eat dinner, I need some motivation (cue Eye of the Tiger). Also, 80′s music really gets me going, especially 80′s hairband music… but that’s a whole other blog post!

So, guess what? I have been working 9 days straight and to get my butt into gear I’ve chosen the “Springtime Pop” station… don’t judge, but I LOVE IT! Seriously, if you have iTunes radio, go play this station now. You will thank me later.

Now, on to the pizza! I love pizza, however, I don’t like the grease and the fat and the calories.. ouch, so many calories in just one slice… whhhyy?! AND why can’t you just eat one slice of pizza? Not possible, I’ve tried. So to ease your conscious, you can make this healthy pizza that’s quick and delicious. No joke, this is a guilt-free dinner that you won’t regret chowing down on. Of course, you can add whatever toppings you want, but I’m sticking with the healthy theme here.
